Adapted Harvard Referencing

Holmes will be implementing has a revised Harvard approach to referencing. The following guidelines apply:

Reference sources in assignments are limited to sources which provide full text access to the source’s content for lecturers and markers.

The Reference list should be located on a separate page at the end of the essay and titled: References.

It should include the details of all the in-text citations, arranged alphabetically A-Z by author surname and each referenced numbered (1 to 10 etc). In addition, each reference MUST include a hyperlink to the full text of the cited reference source.

For example;

1. Hawking, P., McCarthy, B. and Stein, A. 2004. Second Wave ERP Education, Journal of Information Systems Education, Fall,

All assignments will require additional in-text reference details which will consist of the surname of the author/authors or name of the authoring body, year of publication, page number of the content, paragraph where the content can be found.

For example; “The company decided to implement a enterprise wide data warehouse business intelligence strategies (Hawking et al, 2004, p3(4)).”
